That's a good thing. When you have too many images, consider subdirectories,
but _DO NOT_ move existing images from ~/img. Crawlers index them and
refresh their indices for images very, very infrequently. Consider adding
new files in subsubdirectories too (see reason below).

The performance penalty would be merely proportional to putting an extra
straw on a camel's back.
Put CSS files in ~/css. It would give you to better room to expand while
remaining tidy. It also would make your source code more elegant.

Maybe historical reasons should be considered here. My site is quite messy
due to changes in scale that occurred through the years. If it weren't for
crawlers (or laziness), changes would have been made. I am sure that even
the largest businesses started small too.
If you view or list files in a directory with thousands of files, loading
time can be horribly affected. There are more issues to consider like
naming collisions, extensibility and so forth.
